Lengthy links are annoying–especially if you’re trying to share
something within the strict 140-character constraints of Twitter.
The TinyURL Generator Firefox add-on makes creating short links a
breeze. This add-on adds a small link button to the lower-right
corner of your browser.
TinyURL Generator lets you easily shorten URLs.TinyURL Generator
lets you easily shorten URLs.To generate a TinyURL, go to the page
you want to link to, and then click the link button. A TinyURL will
automatically generate and copy to the Clipboard, and then you can
paste it anywhere– Facebook, Google+, Twitter, the Excel sheet
you’re working on, you name it.
Note: This link takes you to the add-on’s page
at Mozilla.org, where you can automatically install the file into
your Firefox browser.
